Little place family owned, fair but attentive service. Moo Shu Pork was terrific and so was an egg roll hot mustard to go with sweet sauce. The sweet and sour pork had no sour, no peppers,no pineapple, ok pork but its not what we ordered....I would go back for the moo shu.More

We made an order for pickup. When we got home, we were extremely disappointed. I have to say that this is the worst Chinese take out I ever had. The flavor was off, there was hardly any chicken in the "chicken" dish. The spring rolls...were greasy.More

Looks like a take out place from the outside, but has very neatly appointed sit down restaurant inside. Kind of hidden in a strip mall adjacent to offices but convenient nonetheless. The lunch specials consist of an entrée with fried rice, a bowl of soup,...egg roll and dish of chow mein noodles. Very tasty and large portions at a reasonable cost.More

Quite good, non-greasy, large portions. Family-run, friendly. Service was a bit slow but indicates that the food is more prepared to order than premade.

China Star was a great choice for dinner on our only night in town. Service was excellent, food was great, and was very affordable. Portions were more than adequate. Would definitely eat here again!

I was about to order the typical Chinese take-out, but my co-worker suggested going here for lunch and I am so glad we did. Everything is priced as it would be if you were ordering from the local to-go Chinese counter, but here you get...a lovely bowl of soup included, very generous portions and a great wait staff. I had the chicken fried rice, was extremely impressed and will definitely be back.More

I ordered the lunch special Chicken with Broccoli and was kind of disappointed. The egg roll was good, but the food was lacking. Barely any broccoli and the chicken was dry. The portion size wasn't very generous either. Very friendly service and very speedy which...was nice. I had read great reviews on Yelp for this restaurant, so I felt it didn't live up to expectations.More

If I've eaten at one Americanized Chinese restaurant I've eaten at a hundred. Like many Chinese restaurants in neither great nor is it bad. If you want the real thing you'll need to hit China town in either SanFransico or Vancouver.
